I bought this for bath times with my daughter, she uses them every bath time for 9months now, she never gets bored of playing with these toys. she is 2years old and still hasn't worked out how to fill them up with water yet, so I have to, but she loves squirting them at the wall and at me, prepare to get a bit wet your self with these.
I really like how they have bright colours which help me teach my daughter the colours, also they have a number 1 to 8 on each octopus, which is also helping with her numbers. She has just got the hang of sticking them on to the side of the bath tub, that she really enjoys doing and pulling them off again. So they are very entertaining for bath time, and I would definately recommend them, they are a good buy.
It also has the green floating stand that you can sit all the octopuses on, it also has numbers on the stand so you can match the octopus with the number but the writing is the same colour as the stand so it is very hard to read, so we dont bother with them.
It also has a big orange octopus that sits in the middle of stand which can be played with by filling up with water and sprinckles out of the holes in the head, which she really enjoys.
The only cristisim I have with the squity octopuses once you have used them for a few months the black dirt inside the octopus builds up, and its very hard to get it all out, so it sometimes comes out when my daughters playing with them. but I cant see having bath time without these she really enjoys playing with them and I guess this would happen with all these types of squirty toys available on the market.
